From First Presbyterian Day School

First Presbyterian Day School is Macon's only three-time National Blue Ribbon School for Exemplary Performance. We offer an exceptional, Christ-centered academic experience for students in 3K - 12th grade. Our mission extends far beyond the classroom. We seek to educate and equip students to change the world for God's glory. That entails more than achieving high grades; that entails helping students develop a strong foundation of faith, academics, servant leadership, and healthy habits. Just as it takes more than one nail to build a house, it takes multiple Christian mentors in multiple facets of a child's development to help students become tomorrow's Christian leaders. If you would like more information about FPD, our would like to schedule a tour, please call 478.477.4774.

    Both of our children attended FPD since 4K. The experience is way more than just a college prep school in Christian environment. It goes beyond that. Teachers are trained to integrate biblical truths into the subject being taught. They challenge students with a rigorous curriculum, with honors and AP options - and love and support them along the way. From art, band and chorus to soccer, tennis and football to community service and missions... there are plenty of opportunities for kids to identify and develop gifts and serve others. The culture was uplifting. Even the lunches were amazing! No better investment into the lives of our kids!

    I've attended FPD since kindergarten and have loved every minute of it. The teachers here truly care for the students and it makes this school unique. It is definitely the strongest school for fine arts across middle Georgia, so anyone interesting in theatre, band, chorus, or visual arts would have a hard time finding a better school for them!
    Great Christian-centered environment with engaged teachers who really care about helping students. I transferred from a public school where teacher engagement was a real problem. At FPD I have been motivated to try harder because my teachers care more! There are also more extra curricular opportunities as well. There is something for everyone.
